‘Don’t Let Nickel Back’ is the name of the campaign.
Inspired by Foo Fighters fans’ recent crowdfunding success, London resident Craig Mandell has created a Kickstarter campaign to keep much-maligned Canadian band Nickelback from returning to the city.
Mandell has promised to send an email to Nickelback’s management for every donation received. $1 gets you one email to Nickelback while $5 gets you a “slightly more forceful email”.
For $50 your donation “will result in an email to Nickleback with an attached mp3 of Nickelback’s music. This way, the band will hear their own music, and likely retire immediately, thereby ensuring the success of our campaign.”
Nickelback don’t have any UK dates scheduled at the moment. If Craig gets his wish it will stay that way. He said “Just imagine, thousands – perhaps tens of thousands of music lovers – all not witnessing an exclusive concert by Nickelback in London. It will be glorious.”
